Sparky golden dress going viral on social media

Rita J King, a futurist and co-director of Science House, a strategic consultancy in Manhattan who was seen wearing a sparky golden dress to deliver a talk at NASA is going viral on social media.

The picture dates back to 2011, where Rita wore the golden dress while giving a speech at a [email protected] event in Hampton, Virginia.

In her tweet, Rita explained why she wore the sparkly dress instead of something more conventional.

“Cleaning out my closet, I came across this gown and remembered the little girls who sent me a letter and asked me to wear something sparkly for a talk I gave at NASA so they could believe that scientists could also be sparkly,” she wrote.

Speaking to Buzzfeed, Rita revealed that she had bought the dress specifically for the occasion, and will never get rid of it.
